Bill Progress Update

Two bills on the list were passed (one held) out of committee today:
HB 95 1st Substitute - Document Fraud - Establishing Legal Status (Morgan, K.) was passed out to the House unanimously. The original Bill HB 95 had a "a civil penalty of up to $75,000 that was regrettably removed. The Substitute bill sets up a "creates a Document Fraud-Identity Theft Unit" with a funding of $275K.

HB0262 Recovery of Federal Reimbursement for Costs Associated with Illegal Immigrants was basically killed by the sponsor, Rep. Karen Morgan, as not necessary because other studies had been done studying the cost of illegal aliens. I'm not sure which study but CAIRCO has one.

Here a a "few" more:

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year.
2. $2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.
3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English! In Utah, an audit reported: "...between $54.9 million and $85.4 million of state and local expenditures went toward the public education of undocumented children...."
5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare and Social Services by the American taxpayers. <>
9. $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two-and-a-half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
11. During the year of 2005 there were 4 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our Southern Border also, as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from Terrorist Countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border. Homeland Security Report.
12. The National Policy Institute, "estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period."
13. In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin.
14. "The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One Million Sex Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States".
